About this deal

But one botched raid later he's palmed off on a DI everyone knows is a jinx, waiting for the axe to fall with all the other rejects in the 'Screw-up Squad'. Storytelling is absolutely wonderful, the story is very well structured and executed, and all the characters are believable and lifelike in their dealings with life in general and in their professions as police officers. Logan is naturally desperate to get off the team as soon as possible and sees the current investigation into murdered prostitutes as his way of doing it.

There was no clear agenda and everyone talked at once, while Steel sat by an open window puffing away on an endless chain of cigarettes, scratching her armpit. DI Steel is not your typical DI and works in very different ways to Logan and his previous boss DI Insch. Watson isn't allowed to shine - her replacement is already clear, and she'll likely wear flimsy lace bras. A hideous arsonist is at large targeting innocent people in in their homes and then nailing the door to their escape route shut. When we meet up with McRae again, he is in disgrace after being in charge of a raid which ended with a police constable being shot.She has no integrity, the manners of an untrained chimp, talks like a drunken sailor, and smokes like a chimney. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Despite the incompetence and abrasive attitude of Detective Inspector Steel Logan eventually gets there in the end. Sometimes with series of books I find the first one excellent so really look forward to reading the next one and it ends up being a bit of a disappointment, but not this one, certainly not!

After a police raid ended badly, DS Logan McRae has been demoted to the “Screw Up” squad under the supervision of DI Steel, a chain-smoking, hard-assed lesbian.Ian Rankin's Rebus character has many enemies, but they do not slow the plot to the extent MacBride's does. Steele has every intention of using Logan for whatever means is at her disposal to get herself some fame and glory and on to better pastures than the “fuck-up squad. And you'll meet Inspector Steel, a force of nature who can hurl epithets better than anyone else in fiction; her rival, Inspector Insch, who is a walking atom bomb; and others.

Those who like their crime thrillers diamond hard need look no further than Stuart MacBride … He has few equals in this area’ Independent --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Steel, whose name is apropos, is a chain-smoking, no-nonsense tough broad who begins her morning team meetings by leading with a cheer: “We are not at home to Mr. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password.
